of the obama administration, they had a great grass roots organization that got him elected, but you needed to put them to work to get legislatures passed and i think that's what you're going to see in the beginning of the second term and it's exactly the right thing to do because you don't run for office just to win, you do it to get things done and that's what has to happen. don't we want growth. after all we want growth. >> and we had no better growth than under bill clinton and that's what we're going back to. that works. >> that was a totally different economy. and the growth. >> how so? >> completely different. we wouldn't go into bill clinton's term of office with a trillion dollars a year worth of deficits. we didn't go into bill clinton's first term of office with government taking 24% gdp, we didn't do that. >> wait, wait we-- we inherited. stuart: i don't want to rewrite economic history i'm not going to let do you that. we took off-- america took off after newt gingrich and the republicans took control of congress in 1994, when the people, the economy could be assured that it wo

this for the obama administration? >> i do not think it will have much a political effect unless president obama -- i think he was surprised to have this happen. i am told he did not immediately accept the resignation. i would have loved for him to have the teachable moment for his administration and for the rest of the country. instead, we are mired in the personal affairs of a man who was done so much for this country. tavis: what is your sense of what this means for his future? the word is that he was on a short list at the top of the list to be the next president of princeton. obviously, a number of opportunities in front of him. what is your sense of how he might navigate beyond this moment? >> he is a bright and determined and ambitious guy. i think he will bounce back. we have a way of bringing our hands over scandals. -- bringing their hands over scandals. petraeus will move on and do something else. i do think this would disqualify him, though, from becoming chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. i did not think petraeus would want to be president. i think he wanted to be chairman of the joi

think there was some disappointmt obama administration did not embrace it fully. i think what the business community would like to hear from president obama is sim bowls on testosterone. they want to hear the word "simpson bowls" because that provides a better blueprint than anything out there right now. >> susie: are you finding that all of this uncertainty about the fiscal cliff is affecting your business. >> our business is electricity demand growth, so right now it hasn't yet. but i think the longer they go, and i mean longer in terms of weeks and days, without showing signs of having a constructive solution, i think it will impact our business virtually more with every day in a very visible way. it is unusual for me to say that because our business tends to be a very long, long-term business, but this is an immediate crisis. >> susie: why an immediate crisis for your business? are you holding back on making plans for next year? is that it? >> because our business is derivative of other parts of the economy. a chemical plant's decision to go ahead and build will have a big

for the second term of the obama administration. it will not be easy. we all know that. this is not a slam dunk. it depends on dynamics within the republican party. there's a lot of opposition and resistance to that. we have to watch it closely. clearly, there seems to be more space and more of an opportunity to do something serious on this issue which we eluded to in the report then before. the second issue, cuba, it's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexi

scandals, events and even acts of war that the obama administration worked to keep secret until after the election. on friday, three days after, we learn that david petraeus, the head of the cia, was stepping down because of an extramarital affair. first i want to say that david petraeus is one of a greatest genuine hero. he is the first general in generations to turn around a war america was losing to iraq and 2006 and 2007 and he helped divert defeat. and for general petraeus to do what he did when he was director of the central intelligence agency, it was triple problem inmatic and opened him up to blackmail. for people who say it's a private matter, you are simply wrong. you can't have the cia director of america involved in a fair. once the affair was revealed, there was not a question in petraeus's mind that he needed to resign. but the story doesn't simply end there. now the white house claims that the president first received information about the affair on thursday. but a source close to journallest ron kessler, who will join me in a few minutes, says that's highly unlikely,

through a presidential election. president obama was re-elected. and the obama administration had a number of i think foreign policy and counterterrorism successes during the first administration. obviously osama bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama's oversea drawdown of tops in iraq as well as afghanistan. and yet i think one of the most lasting legacies from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials termed the yemen model. this is sort of how it is that the u.s. is going to fight these wars, these wars against nonstate actors, wars against groups like al qaeda in the future. and in many ways i think that during the first term of the obama presidency yemen has become the laboratory for this sort of approach. yemen is now a place over the past four years where the u.s. has tested out different ways in which it could fight al qaeda. so we've seen a number of different approaches and we've seen the obama administration move away from what the bush administration attempted to do with sort of large ground scale invasions of iraq
, for the first three years of the obama administration, we saw every negative behavior towards the oil and gas industry that was possible. suddenly in january 2012, we had this suddenly announced all in, all the above energy strategy which didn't mark with all the actions of the prior three years. my guess is my prediction is that we go back to the original obama administration which is negative towards fossil energy, coal will be diminishing in effect over the next four years. >> they are going to take coal out. epa will take coal out. that's what they want. >> exactly. they want it gone. there will be a demonstration this sunday at the white house against the keystone pipeline. they will march around the white house and pull out thousands of people and it will be a sierra club and jim hanson. >> and prolong the keystone study forever. >> right. >> so we never get that pipe line a no-brainer of a decision. >> two years ago, three years ago. >> yes. there's 160,000 miles to pipeline. we are fighting over 1700 mile pipe line we will beat the saudis. >> we can beat -- >> given half after chance.
